. the same week a government report revealing some major misuse in a green grant. 150 million taxpayer dollars going to electric battery company where inspectors found employees playing video games, card games, cards, working at animal shelters, all while on the clock. and the only batteries they're building, so far they're in south korea. we keep hearing stories like this. so at a time when we're desperately looking for places to cut the federal budget, is this a perfect place to start? hi, everybody. welcome to "forbes on fox." let's go in with steve forks, rick you thinker, elizabeth mcdonald, morgan brennan, rich carlguard and mike. steve, if you want to cut waste, is this the place to start? >> sure, david. green energy a great place to save green dollars. if green energy had any promise, entrepreneurs would be in on it. in terms of clean energy, we have it in our backyard with natural gas, remove obstacles to that, we'll have all the clean energy we want and need and export it. >> rick, you're against government waste. this was an incredibly wasteful program. is this the place we
the united states state department was an extension of the israeli government. things like that are unnerving. there is at least one speech he gave that he did not report that we think there is a copy of that we may get in the next few days. that is why i should -- i would oppose cloture today. i will vote for it after the recess. host: senator lindsey gramm of south carolina. joe is on our independent line. caller: i have interest in giving you a call because i have been doing research on the government. at this time, i have to publicize to the world that the government has committed an act of tyranny. they are doing what they should -- -- they are not doing what they should be done -- be doing for the sake of our people. and this time to play hardball against these individuals were shown in the past 80 years who have not been in the better interest of our children. that means 300 million of us need to get really involved in our government and participate. these guys do not care about this. history is showing it. the congress and senate -- this is why the federalists, james madison, set up t
, legislation that keeps the government funded and running. he wants to keep that separate from sequestration. explain why and what might happen on that. >> i think it is a stop-gap measure. it is not a real bill or appropriation bill that funds the government. it is basically avoiding government shut down. i don't think mr. rogers was to have a discussion on how to avoid the sequestered until we get very close to a government shutdown if people cannot agree on which to do it. one thing we did discuss, that is important for people to understand is that the sequestered woodcuts overall government spending by $1.20 trillion for the next nine years. this year, it would be $85 billion. how rodgers, the way he would present, he would write that the government would be funded the way it was last year, but if the sequestered takes effect, it would cut off -- >> a big part of this process? >> it is unclear exactly how all of this will work. part of it is that sometimes, if you talk to some of the people, the new were more ardent er moreatives, -- the new wer conservative members, they take the view t
economic policies, the government, free enterprise. here is how it stacked up. the president wants more government. he wants more government spending. on the list, universal pre-school, 50 billion dollars worth of road and bridge building, a green energy security trust fund. he said we could grow through government action and it will not raise the deficit one dime senator rubio responded with the exact opposite. free enterprise would result in prosperity for everyone and the senator, addressing president, i don't oppose your plan because i want to protect the rich. i oppose your plan because i want to protect my neighbors. election 2016 began last night. "varney & company" is about to begin and i tell you now stocks could hit a record high very could hit a record high very soon. today is gonna be an important day for us. you ready? we wanna be our brother's keeper. what's number two we wanna do? bring it up to 90 decatherms. how bout ya, joe? let's go ahead and bring it online. attention on sit now starting unit nine. some of the world's cleanest gas turbines are now powering some of am
that put big, big bets. we're lucky we have mit and caltech, but we are not at the country, the government side or the corporate side, putting those investments together and that's what i worry about. we're not investing more into it, when not going to be the ones that read the benefits. >> i think that's the question. is their net, whatever its taking place, in basic technology to support the stuff that you want to do. >> it's the case were lots of research as an economist would put a social -- the private return is insufficient to generate the private sector. and so that's why i think we have to look for more of these types of partnerships between government, industry. so one good example of this is collaboration that the federal government has with the semiconductor industry, where, so simply no amount institutions like bell labs, which created large investments in developing the first transistor, government and industry are now cosponsoring a series of university-based centers of excellence at mit and stanford and berkeley and ucla that our first alternative figure how do we take, as f
got a penny from the government, never even asked for it. let me say that i think america has become a country where we want the easy way out on everything. i would suggest that most people in this country have not worked with or in the federal government to actually see how representatives and our representatives in the white house -- and our members and the white house to use that money. it is unbelievable how much money is wasted in this federal government. point number two is that i say to my democratic friends, if you want to pay more taxes you are more than willing and able to do so. there are a group of people that want to pay more taxes, let them pay more taxes. anyone can go ahead and send more money into the government. maybe that will help our system. most families have the budget, but the government doesn't understand the budget. host: for you, no new taxes'? and you think republicans should hold the line on that even if it means these automatic spending cuts go through on march 1? caller: yes i do. i think they should go through. the congress has had three or four years
's not a real bill that funds -- it's not an appropriations bill that funds the government. it's a way of basically avoiding government shutdown and i think the reason mr. rogers doesn't want to have a discussion on how to avoid the sequester is because, again, it's very close to a government shutdown because people can't agree on a way to do it. one thing we didn't discuss i think that's actually important for people to understand is that the sequester actually would affect a continuing resolution because the sequester would cut overall government spending by, you know, $1.2 trillion over the next nine years and this year would be $85 billion. so i think hall rogers, the way he would present it would be he would write -- the government would be funded the same level it was funded last year but a sequester takes effect, it's going to cut off the amount of -- >> the amount of money the appropriators have to work with, andy taylor, are they a part of this process? >> well, it's unclear how all this will work and part of it is, as roxannea and i were discussing before we talked to the cha
areas are worse than others. the government has a compelling interest to address this. they need to try to put rules on the table, not to take away the second amendment, but to enforce more rules to negate these happenings. host: the president several times reiterating that the proposal deserves a vote. what he think? caller: i agree. congress is our lawmakers. they put things in place and have to have a vote on this. i agree it should come to that. i believe in the second amendment. we have to make concessions here. host: do you think that congress will take up the votes and what the president is proposing? what do you ultimately think will, of that? caller: i think it will come to a decision. it has become very imperative to do something about it. at this time i think they are going to come to a fair decision across the board, how to address this and put rules in place that we have to negate thkis from happening. host: jim from twitter says this -- "vote on it and move it down, and then move onto something important." we go to ralph on the democrat'' line. caller: i agree with the aut
from what people paid regardless of what the government is taken out, or what they have paid in counts. it is count in the deficit numbers picture trying to do something about? who wants to go first? congressman price. >> yeah, the debt ceiling affairs. nobody is talking about paying the data. nobody is talking about not paying the public debt. what were talking about is making sure we get are spending under control so we can create an economy that's vibrant and be able to cover the debt of this great country without the austerity measures we've seen in other countries. so there's two things you got to think about. the debt that's been incurred. yes, the nation is good for that type. and the path forward. are we going to ban that down so they can actually have an economy that is vibrant and create jobs, or are we going to go as far as the eye can see? you could do some point we physically cannot create the wealth in the country to cover the data. so is it appropriate role? i'm a physician. i'm not a constitutional lawyer. my reading of it says all spending starts with the house of repr
because the government itself is a consistent obstacle. the national federation of independent businesses recently released figures from december indicating the mood of businesses is at a recession level. 70% of business owners that were surveyed identified the current environment as a bad time to expand and political uncertainty topped the list for the reasons not to attempt economic growth. lee, a resident of muskogee, oklahoma, and president of acme corporation, said a lot of small businesses had to go in debt to stay afloat. he said now they can't make the money they need to to pay down debts due in large part the environment the government has created. i joined a small group of members in congress. i have faced unprecedented difficulties ensuring my business succeeded. i step on the floor of the united states house of representatives with a firsthand understanding how high the hurdles are for a business to succeed and just simply jump over. last month when president obama was sworn into his second term, i was reminded of something he said four years ago in his first inauguration. the
.?? >> john, said a funny thing. you said no matter how much the government screws up, caltech will still be caltech and m.i.t. will still be m.i.t. outside the beltway, it is a different reality and you talked about public and private partnerships at the local level. can you talk about why they are so important and maybe share your story about how you see the power partnerships? >> i did not mind it versus the real world. i spend most of my time with the company's seen what kind of problems they're having in what they're struggling with. it's true. in the same way that jeff immelt was not worried about only g e come up but there are a lot of companies out there that you do have to worry about. i'm not worried we're going to get left behind in terms of did creating all of these. we have the smartest people in the world at caltech's and m.i.t.'s. we need to work together to bring that to bear so businesses are doing well and we have jobs. that has been my concern for a long time and it continues to be so. this morning, there is a lot of discussion of partnerships. then we heard about netwo
laid out tonight. the choice isn't just between big government or big business. >> oh, so unsmooth and awkward. rubio did speak out this morning on "good morning america" and said "i needed water" what was i going to do? >> we're back after the break. going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. stop looking at car interiors. get inspired by other stuff. yep. yep. ok. sure. why not? woah. touchscreens. put that in your dash. now, luxury stuff. make your seats like that. that thing has wifi, why doesn't your car? you can't do that. ignore that guy. give it wifi. yes! make it fit 5 people. no, 5 actual sized people. give them leg room, good.

things but in part on negotiations with the government of afghanistan over legal protections for our troops. the president has made clear that then missions of residual u.s. presence in afghanistan after 2014 will be limited to current terrorism operations and training and advising afghan forces. general austin would bring exceptional experience in overseeing this transition, having commanded u.s. forces in iraq during the reduction of u.s. forces and equipment from iraq. just this past weekend our forces in afghanistan have had a change of command, with general joseph duckworth replacing general john allen as commander of the international securities systems forces and commander of u.s. forces afghanistan. i want to take this opportunity to thank general allen for his thoughtful and devoted leadership in afghanistan, for his forthrightness and his interactions with me and the rest of the members of this committee. when senator reid and i visited afghanistan in january, we saw a real signs of progress, including the afghan security forces increasingly taking the lead responsibility f
about government overreach than solving real problems. he says, where were they talking about school safety. why aren't we talking about hardening the targets. the president has been very skeptical about that and didn't say anything about it in his state of the union. >> you've got a packed "meet the press." you've got john mccain, denis mcdonough, the new white house chief of staff, and i want to start with sort of some obvious questions that mcdonough's going to face. chuck hagel watching this. the president is not going to get forced to pull back on this. >> he got re-elected and he wants his guy. the guy he wants is someone he's sympa sympatico with. he'll have to deal with these republicans who have this personal vendetta against him. he does carry this baggage. and i think these performance issues have not helped. his performance in his confirmation hearing did not make people inside the white house more confident about him. but, again, second term presidents, their level of confidence, who they want for the reasons they want them carry the day. >> john mccain, we saw all sides

what he's saying, rubio scored the biggest points when he talked about big government. >> the idea more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hard working middle class taxpayers an old idea that's failed every timist been tried. more government won't help you get ahead. it will hold you back. more government isn't going to create more opportunities. it's going to limit them. and more government isn't going to inspire new ideas. new businesses, and new private-sector jobs. it's going to create uncertainty. >> republican senator rand paul gave the tea party response and chastised both parties for spending too much. he also talked about limiting the reach of the federal government. >> what america needs is not robin hood but adam smith. in the year we won our independence, adam smith described what creates the wealth of nations, he described a limited government that largely did not interfere with individuals in their pursuit of happiness. all that we are, all that we wish to be is now threatened by the notion that you can have something for nothing, that you can have
. our border is not secure. the ability of our government to enforce the law is -- has its share of problems as well. there are a number of issues that have to be resolved here. and so let's not get too far down the road. i want my colleagues to continue to work together to see if they can't come to a solution that's acceptable here in the house. >> mr. speaker, you mentioned jobs. what did you think of the president's proposal to fix it now, put people back to work repairing the nation's infrastructure? >> as you are all well aware i have worked very diligently over the last couple years to try to grapple with our infrastructure problems here in america. the problems we have are chiefly one of resources. and still trying to find a funding source to repair the nation's infrastructure is still a big goal of mine. the president talked about infrastructure, he hasn't talked about how to pay for it. it's easy to go out there and be santa claus and talk about the things you want to give away, but at some point somebody has to pay the bill. i pushed mr. shuster, the new chairman of our
to strengthening the middle class. >> it is our unfinished task to make sure this government works on behalf of the many, not just the few. >> reporter: a noticeable presence of small ribbons worn by the more that be 40 invited guests, all victims or related to victims of gun violence. >> it has been two months since newtown. i know this is not the first time this country has debated how to reduce gun violence. but this time is different. >> reporter: the president also announced that half of the troops now serving in afghanistan, about 34,000, will be home by this time next year. but the focus remains primarily on the economy, with several proposals, including a plan to raise the middle wage. >> tonight, let's declare that in the wealthiest nation on earth no one who works full time should have to live in poverty. >> reporter: republicans shot back. the party's response given in both spanish and english by florida senator marko rubio, who accused the president of hurting the middle class with deficit spending and tax hikes. >> the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the bes
a simple vote. >> the republican response, senator rubio of florida said more government will not help. >> more government does not help you get ahead. it will hold you back. more government isn't going to create more opportunity. it will limit them. more government isn't going toibl expire new ideas, new businesses, and new private sector jobs. >> speaker boehner says immigration reform is the only item on the president's agenda that actually has a chance of passing this year. >> six of the nine supreme court justices attended the "state of the union" address. those that did not included scalia and he is explaining why. he says he hasn't attended a "state of the union" address in 16 years but it is a childish spectacle and says he does not wand to lend dignity to a political event filled with applause lines. the supreme court justice calls the "state of the union" address a "rather silly affair." stay with abc citizen for continuing coverage of the president's "state of the union" address and george stephanopolis will have reaction on "good morning america" at 6:00. >> he speaks his m
government spending is the best way to help hardworking middle class taxpayers, that's an old idea that's failed every time it's been tried. >> reporter: and the president will now go on the road to promote this agenda that he outlined. his first stop will be north carolina later today. rob and diana? >> and marci, another big topic of discussion in the speech last night was immigration reform. that seemed to be a rare moment of true bipartisanship last night in the speech. >> reporter: that's true. he got a very big applause when he said, send me a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the next few months and i will sign it right away. the president put out a tweet with that quote and it got retweeted a bunch of times. that's a big deal to get those retweets. >> also, we heard from marko rubio there, but he wasn't the only senator to offer a response to that state of the union tonight, was me? >> that's right. we also heard a response from the tea party express senator rand paul gave his rebuttal after senator rubio's rebuttal. a lot of people saying that his criticism of the presid
which will depend on many things but in part on negotiations with the government of afghanistan over a legal protection for the troops. the president has made clear that the missions of any residual u.s. military presence in afghanistan after 2014 will be limited to counterterrorism operations and tracing to the training and advising forces. general austin would bring exceptional experience overseeing this transition having commanded u.s. forces in iraq during the reduction of u.s. forces and equipment from iraq. just this past weekend, the forces in afghanistan have had a change of command with, excuse me, joseph replacing general john allen as the commander of the international security assistant forces and commander u.s. forces afghanistan. i want to take this opportunity to see three general ellen for your thoughtful and devoted leadership and afghanistan for his forthrightness and interactions and the rest of the members of the committee. when senator reid and i visited afghanistan and january we saw the signs of progress including the afghan security forces increasingly taking
entry for the you will not believe this file. the government accountability office just releasing a report on government waste, peter barnes has seen it and he's in washington, give me a headline number that will shock me, peter. >> these are, welsh the government operations on the high risk list for being vulnerable to waste, fraud abuse and mismanagement and at the top of the list the overall programs that deal with possible climate change problems such as the federal flood insurance program, disaster relief programs and spending on those have exceeded over 100 billion in recent years. taxpayers are also at risk, according to the gao, for 24 billion dollars in new satellite, weather and tracking systems. but have you got a second for one piece of good news, stuart? are you sitting down? >> yeah, go. >> i've got one for you, the computer geeks at the irs have made enough fixes to the agency's 10 billion dollar computer modernization program which went on the list in 1995 to finally get it off. back to you. >> hold on a second, i want to go back to that 100 billion dollar number.
to find a solution. >> let's agree to keep the people's government open and pay our bills on time and always uphold the full faith and credit of the united states of america. >> the president said it is time to fix immigration, u.s. immigration, and cyber security along with the gun violence. another victim of violent crime. >> the families of newtown deserve a vote. the families of aurora deserve a vote. the families of oak creek, tucson, and the countless other communities deserve a simple vote. >> the republican response, marco rubio rejected the president's call for new government programs, saying the best way to help the economy is to reduce the size of the economy. >> his solution to every problem we face is for washington to tax more and spend more. that is an old idea that has failed every time we have tried. >> while the president has focused on domestic calls -- policy, he did call to end and in its involvement in afghanistan by 2014. he said afghanistan is a shadow -- al qaeda is a shadow of itself but still a threat. >> thank you. aside from the economy the debate over
. but an appeal for more government spending, for education, infrastructure and doubling down on risky new energy program, all the while promising to be fiscally responsible. >> nothing i'm proposing should increase our deficit by a single dime. >> at the same time he called on congress to skirt the sequester. hit the pentagon in particular. his proposals for a $9 an hour minimum wage and new tax hikes signal more battles ahead by congressional republicans. he pressed for immigration reform and an audience that included the families of shooting victims, he pushed for more gun control measures. >> the families of newtown, deserve a vote. >> the republican response was delivered in spanish and english by a rising republican star. florida senator marco rubio. but zeroed in on the spending plans. >> i don't oppose your plans because i want to protect the rich. i don't oppose your plans because i want to protect my neighbors. >> that is an area where both sides seem to have some agreement. could be some compromise. there is a hearing scheduled in the senate later today. tony. >> thank you very much, m
saying the government can't create jobs and by the way, president, where are the jobs. stephanie: the president is not offering a ladder. you take the lower rung away. >> put in an escalator or elevator to get to the ladder. john: this guy, president obama in late 2011 put forth a jobs bill that was 60% tax cuts and they still killed it. they don't believe in anything they say. stephanie: yep. barbara in d.c., you're on with john. caller: hi. john: good morning. caller: i'm switching subjects a little bit. i'm getting torqued about the sequester. it amazing me that the republicans want to take the economy back into recession so, you know, if we go into the quester, here's my suggestion, we start with the republican congress. we lay off or furlough 20% of congress immediately. we will save money and we will be able to get the bills passed. stephanie: yeah. yeah. caller: i would start with. caller: nhot, mccain, gram, cruise from texas myrtle the turtle. paul ryan, we could get a lot of stuff done. stephanie: it is amazing john how we said it's clear they both voted for it, both si
'm making today is how we pay drives the type of care we are getting. at the centerpiece of government policy on health care is that medicare pays less for every service than private insurers to come and medicare pays even less. it's called cost-sharing on the island. cost shifting on the island, excuse me. it's almost impossible to compare these prices for any specific service, so the data i have actually seven years old, the real good study of a civil service, and it's for michigan. at the time in michigan, private insurance with paying just under $800 for an appendectomy to the surgeon. medicare was paying $676. medicaid west bank $335. sounds like a great deal for medicaid. now, many of you have been in the cheeseburger markets. you can buy a cheeseburger at mcdonald's 4909 cents. you go to the cheesecake factory, sit down, have a more leisurely meal, and by a cheeseburger for $11.95. you can go to our neighbor, the bistro, a by cheeseburger for $32. now, if you lived in health care, what you would say is this cost shifting between mcdonald's and db bistro. here's my fear. my fear
